Abstract A new cell line has been derived from a human extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (ESMCS) obtained from a 77-year-old female. Its morphological, chromosomal, and biological characteristics are described in this report. This cell line is morphologically very similar to the original tumor cells and secretes hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfuric acid, and keratan sulfuric acid. At the time of this report, the cell line has undergone 20 passages and continues to exhibit the original morphological, chromosomal, and biological characteristics. From our studies, it is strongly suggested that tumor cells of human extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma might be cartilaginous cells.
